Looks like the MOD 70’s experienced yet another capsize just a couple of weeks ago while practicing for the Transat Jacques Vabre. It’s pretty serious when these things go over as Team Spindrift can vouch for with their spill back in June in Dùn Laoghaire, Ireland.

Virbac Paprec was the sponsor on the hull of this MOD 70 Trimaran and I think world class skipper Jean Pierre Dick was the man falling 50 some feet into the cold ocean waters (follow the red arrow).
I wonder how they right these things…….
